It's a little over half a mile, mostly uphill on this rugged trail to view this arch. Be aware this will be a viewpoint only, this trail does not lead to the arch. Bring a zoom lens

There is many different points around delicate arch to enjoy its beauty, this one may be good for a nice overview and some decent photo opportunities.

We came to the Delicate Arch Viewpoint around sunset. It is an easy walk from the parking lot. Once we got to the view point, we walked out towards the Arch another 15 minutes and found a quiet spot for pictures and enjoyed the silence.

Delicate Arch is very far away. If you can, you should hike to the arch. It is a strenuous hike but the views at the arch are breathtaking. Visiting Delicate Arch was my favorite thing at any of the National Parks in Utah. If you...More
